First 2006 foal:

March 15, 2006
The first " 2006 " foal was born at stud farm Overis this week. A ( to become ) grey mare, from the stallion Canturo out of a Bentley x Transvaal mare. In 2004 Canturo won the Queen Elizabeth II Cup Qualifier at Spruce Meadows, competed at the Olympics in Athens with Brazil's Bernardo Alves and sired the 2004 Champion stallion at the Neumunster approvals. Last year, Canturo won the " Prize of Europe " at the Aachen CHIO. Canturo, double Cor de la Bryere, produces very flashy modern foals with superior jumping abilities and gaits. Last son of the legendary Cantus, his damsire Calando was the German Champion in 1984 with Karsten Huck. The line traces to Landego ( Landgraf - Marlon xx - Ramzes ) to Pannier xx and Manometer xx. Afficionades predict that Canturo will become one of the most famous jumping sires of this decade. His offspring jump spectacularly from birth. The grey dam Jonie was the mother of the 2006 auction horse Centurion van Overis Z, and the 2005 auction horse Cognac van Overis ( Darco ).
